Come Visit Us

Thank you for your interest in The Valley School. We welcome applicants for Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade. Children need to be four years old by August 31st to attend our Pre-Kindergarten program and five years old to attend our Kindergarten program. The application process includes an application submitted through Ravenna Admit, a school tour attended by parents or guardians, an optional Open House to hear about our educational program directly from teachers, and a child visit. Throughout the admissions process, our goal is to get to know you and your child and share our mission and educational approach. Please explore our website for more information and do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.


We are currently accepting applications for Pre-K and 1st through 5th grade. While still accepting applications for Kindergarten, this class is full and we are therefore adding families to our waitlist. Please contact Lora Kolmer, Director of Admissions and Community Relations ( for more information.
